. >> the president said we would not listen in. would you listen in on angela merkel? president -- >> they are not listening to her conversations. ata thatrt of the mega d is coming in and they scan it for what they call selectors which are indicators of trouble. --y are not listening to her that, i got some political gossip. >> i would be surprised if they did not target other heads of state. what about thee, countermeasures of their own security services? -- she is they repository of the crown jewels. jealous because they do not have the capability. >> the story this week is not angela merkel. real story is there are powerful forces arrayed against the nsa. google. apple, yahoo!, you can mess with the french and the spanish but do not mess with silk hunt valley and that it -- silicon valley. that to me is the story. >> we have these big headlines and they go away and went to stand f -- we understand that there is more stuff to come. how accurate is the reporting on this? >> "the washington post" has been clear about what they have released. we have seen them do one story after
journal" said the nsa had eavesdropped on angela merkel's cell phone for years. the paper said president obama was informed of the procedure this summer and it had been stopped. german lawmakers were outraged. >> eavesdropping on the mobile phone conversations of heads of government takes things to a new level. it is unacceptable. but this cannot distract us from the fact that a massive amount of spying on normal german citizens and businesses was underway at the same time. >> many called for talks on a free-trade deal between the u.s. and the eu to be suspended. in washington, barack obama promised to review u.s. intelligence efforts. >> what we've seen over the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand, and that's why i am initiating a review to make sure that what they are able to do doesn't do sincerely mean what they should be doing -- doesn't necessarily mean what they should be doing. times" saysyork obama should move to stop surveillance on all heads of state. .he allegations kept on coming media reports said the nsa had also tapped into google and yah
be smart about this. you don't stop terrorists in europe by listening in on angela merkel's cell phone. the rewards of spying on friendly heads of government are probably outweighed by the risks. and most troubling, it's not clear that many of these specific activities were clearly thought through and directed by the white house. nor do they appear to have been vetted by congress. in the wake of 9/11, america got scared and dropped any sense of constraints on its intelligence activities. it is not an accident that the eavesdropping on chancellor merkel began in 2002. the fact that technology now allows the nsa to do anything doesn't mean it should do everything. we need a better and clearer set of rules for intelligence activity and we need confidence that these rules are being followed and observed. let's get started. >>> given the realities i just talked about, what is really going on in the heads of european officials? is all of this anger and outrage genuine? who better to ask than a former top official who can speak freely. that's why i invited germany's defense minister from 2009
's karzai saying to chief of staff, whether he knew it was angela merkel talking on her cell phone, i don't know. what we've seen is the nsa is just one of those organizations that if it can do it, it will do it. these are young, techno-phyles they solve these puzzles for the challenge they got out of control. i like to the sorcerers, all the buckets of water. it just got out of control. >> schieffer: what it does kind of make you wonder, doesn't it, david, maybe just because we're reporters, but i'm sitting here reading this or getting this intelligence brief, wouldn't you say, how do you know that? >> in the first year of presidency i could image in a president not knowing it. by year five you have to say, at some point he's likely to of a asked that question. if he didn't, it's almost certain that many of his national security aides would have. because while the president gets as david indicated this presidential daily brief, it's an analytical product. what his aides get are the product and the annex beneath it of the raw intelligence. so, that then raises the question of oversight
. >> although the president was not aware of the tapping of the cell phone of angela merkel, this nsa controversy continues to spread. in the wakeover it, edward snowden has had a meeting with a german legislator the, present that person with a letter, speaking the truth is not a crime, i am confident that with the support of the international community the government of united states will abandon this harmful practice. he's seeking some kind of clemency. are there any conditions under which president obama would consider clemency? >> none that have been discussed. >> none at all? >> none. >> it's not on the table? >> it's not been on the table. mr. snowden violated u.s. law. our belief has always been that he should return to the united states and face justice. >> finally, rand paul is our next guest, senator rand paul, do you agree with jay carney your white house colleague, that it would be awesome if rand paul ran for president in 2016? >> i suspect that the the 2016 republican nomination is going to be awesome no matter who runs. >> okay, dan pfeiffer, thanks very much. >>> let's
for road and bridge repairs. but, john, you say it's raising a big privacy issue. >> yeah. see if angela merkel wants to come over here and get in a car with a black box right now. the nsa is spying on europeans to americans, reading our emails. you really want a black box in my chevy truck down in east texas? i don't think i want to do that. the problem is the gas tax hasn't been raised in two decades, and we need that to fund roads and bridges. look, this rewards cars that are fuel efficient and punishes those that are not. a black box that would do something similar would be so complex because you would have to deal with the weight and model of the car. this is an unbelievable complex mechanism, much less to say a privacy concern. >> believe it or not, jonas does not have a chevy truck, but he does have a scooter, and that has something to do with your argument. >> first of all, if you think the government can't track you down without a black box in your car, you don't even know. but i like the gas tax. this makes sense and forget the privacy concerns for a second. there are people in
as important as we got it from the chancellor of germany angela merkel that would be fairly clear to the president when he's being briefed. >> so there's some discussion now that what should happen is we have, the united states has, an agreement with five countries, britain, canada, australia, new zealand and the united states, five countries, that we don't spy on each other and they share intelligence. now people are saying we should include germany and france in that five group of five and make it a group of seven. you agree? >> no. the germans, and france want to go there. but it's a special relationship that we've had with the english-speaking world that's built up over decades of trust. we compete with france on things and with germany. i mean, the worst thing about this, and is that we created a political problem for chancellor merkel, and the french, having this come out. >> inside germany. >> they actually don't -- i mean i'm sure they know this was going on. but once the documents came out they had to deal with it politically at home. >> what should they do to handle that

to an unnamed senior u.s. official, obama didn't know his own nsa was spying on angela merkel and other american allies. >> the white house says the president did not know merkel's phone was targeted. >> is it conceivable? is it believable that the president would not know about surveillance of a head of state of a close american ally? >> then it was nbz's lisa meyers reporting on what the administration knew three years ago about the president's promise. you heard it over and over that those who liked their insurance could keep their plan. >> when you add those two parts together, you get more than 40% to 730% of folks in the individual market cannot keep their policies even if they want to and the administration knew that. >> obama for his part is saying some critics of the program are being grossly misleading. tim carney from the washington examiner and juan williams, a columnist for the hill and lauren ashburn are joining us. lauren, why are the media engaging this? >> i think president obama has lost the benefit of the doubt with the washington media and it started when the department of ju

beyond what anyone realized. beyond the wiretapping of angela merkel personal cell phone. it's hard to believe a terrorist would call her up and say i am a terrorist, i thought you would i thought i would let you know that we are going to blow up a building. it does not sound very likely they should be doing that. that is my opinion. host: what do you make of the revelations overall of what the work that the nsa is doing? guest: the nsa is an important agency. it seems they have gone beyond what anyone suspected they could be doing. i do not think their collection of metadata is not over her, but logged. -- overheard but logged. that seems to be going beyond what is necessary. if they have a bad guy, they can put in for a warrant. they will get a warrant in almost every case to wiretap that person. they do not need to know that i was talking to my brother or my on -- or my aunt on the phone. i called that person. that is pretty suspicious. that seems -- if they suspect you or they suspect me, they can get a warrant and they can wiretap our phone. they do not need to wiretap every ph
didn't know we were spying on angela merkel. this is what's coming out of the white house. and i have to disagree, respectfully, with the reverend. this has been a consistent critique from the left and the white. during the syria crisis three months ago, it was maureen dowd, it was dana millbank from the washington post who called the president a bystander. so this is nothing new. it's been fairly consistent and it has emerged because of his consistent governing style of creating this plausible deniability when thinking going wrong. and that's because this president, more than anyone in modern history has an aversion to modern history. >> it's just basic management practice when you have a massive screw up like obama care, why doesn't he fire anybody for these mistakes? >> i can't speak for the president. i think decency would say that after a massive screw up on signature legislation, that the person ought to have the grace themselves to resign. >> i agree with that completely. >> having said that, you or on i might fire that person or create a climate -- you see, the real climate yo
